Famous US actor Johnny Depp, who was on the agenda for a while with the defamation lawsuit he filed against his ex-wife Amber Heard, made a glorious return to cinema with the movie "Jeanne du Barry", in which he gave life to King Louis XV of France. However, the accusations against the director of the movie overshadowed the movie.
HE GRABBED HER BY THE HAIR AND SPAT
The director Maiwenn Le Besco, who also starred in the film, came under fire last year. The director was accused of physically assaulting a journalist. The director is said to have attacked Edwy Plenel, a French journalist from Medipart magazine, in a restaurant. The director got up, grabbed Plenel by the hair, spat in his face and left the restaurant without saying anything.
Maiwenn told the French talk show Quotidien that this incident happened. When asked if he spat at the journalist, the director said, "Do I confirm that I attacked him?" and after a long silence he admitted, "Yes."
The famous director and actor was fined 400 euros for spitting at a French journalist. The director was ordered to pay a symbolic 1 euro to Plenel and 1500 euros to Mediapart magazine.
MAGAZINE PUBLISHED A STORY ABOUT HIS EX-WIFE
Although Mediapart magazine had no coverage of the director, the magazine had published a scandalous story alleging that the director's ex-wife, director Luc Besson, had raped multiple women.
